“Confession catches the sinner in his fall away from God… It makes visible the fact that the Church turns to all sinners… I have been baptized, but I do not live according to the rule of baptism. I have been confirmed, but I am no apostle of Christ. I do attend Mass, but it remains incomprehensible for me… Saints are shown to me, but I am simply not one… But if I am told that the confessional is reserved for sinners, then I know that here finally is a place for me; it is precisely I who am meant. The pew there was especially made for me (Adrienne Von Speyr, Confession, 93-94).
No matter if you go to confession regularly, or haven’t been in years the Father is longing to run to you and welcome you home.
Confession is offered at St. Anthony’s on Fridays @ 4:15 until 5p.m. prior to Mass or by appointment, contacting the parish office or the business manager.
